HELLO MASAI: I see U R keeping an eye on them hmm, they don't know that "Pan" has already gone past the conventional instruments, since 1960 "In a Monastery Garden, Voices fo Spring, Roses of the South, Poet and Peasant," pan can can play any kind of music and then some, Robert Greenidge has demonstated this, when he worked with Taj Mahal a tune called "Curry", I was in the studio with "Robbie" when he worked with country and western singer Lynn Anderson, Earth Wind and Fire, Larry Graham, before Jimmy Buffett, Pan Am North Stars with pianoist Winnefred Atwell, and the Marinottes Choir with Joslyn Pierre, most people don't know and or have'nt heard these musical pieces, Stay on them MASAI, I'll do the same...
